The Double Red Duke

We will always maintain the highest standards of hygiene and always follow latest Government advice for hospitality, safety of our team and guests is our upmost priority.

We kindly ask to be informed of any allergies we need to be aware of in advance of your visit.

We always do our best to accommodate mild allergies but cannot guarantee that we work in a nut, dairy, gluten or allergen-free environment given the complexity of our menu.

Our menu is mainly meat and fish lead however there are limited options available for vegetarians and vegans.

Make your experience extra special and book a seat at our Chef’s Counter, the best seat in the house – where guests can enjoy our menu that’s all about cooking over an open fire where everything is fuelled by local wood and charcoal. Expect large cuts of local meat and fish, expertly charred over bespoke rotisserie and wood-fired grill while watching the chefs in action.
